I ask this question because unusually I have seen three of my local clients (this includes myself) targetted by thieves, since the start of this year. In each of these cases the thieves left empty handed because the security system that we installed was fully operational. So as soon as the burglars attempted to enter [...]

Foiling The Van Thieves

In recent months there have been thieves who specialise in stealing power tools from vans parked outside of the owners homes. They drive around at the dead of night selecting vehicles to target. They have a master key that allows them to unlock the van and turn off the van alarms. Even CCTV does not [...]

Our new tag line (above) that I recently introduced, isn't simply a play on words. It is intended to make potential clients think seriously about making a choice if they plan to make an investment in security, because that is how security should be looked upon, as an investment. Your return on this investment is [...]

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 mandates that ALL business premises (and this care homes, guest houses etc. often referred to as HMO's House in Multi Occupation) conduct a fire risk assessment to protect the occupants and premises against fire.

Well meaning advice must always be viewed with a degree of caution, as it can sometimes be misleading. I was talking to a recent burglary victim the other day, who had recently moved into an out-of-the way rural area. They consulted the Police when they moved in. The Police visited their home and remarked that [...]

This might seem a bit obvious, but perhaps it is something I should consider turning my hand to? Why you might ask? It is becoming increasingly apparent that people are buying security from everyone else other than professional alarm companies. You only have to take a glance at the upper levels of properties to see [...]

What message does a blank bell box give?

I spend most of my time when I am out and about looking up at the eaves of the properties that I pass. No, it is not because I have a neck muscle infliction, it is because that is where most intruder alarm sirens are installed. It is a concern to me that I am [...]
